Book 2: Technical Writing—Management Perspective

Table of Contents of Book: Technical Writing—Management Perspective

There are many books in the market about transition to management roles and about managing documentation teams, but unfortunately none of them cater to the needs of the Indian managers or the senior writers who are getting into the management roles. The books written on this subject by non-Indian authors are very informative and useful, but when discussing the documentation management in a wider perspective, we have to consider the differences in the work culture, management policies, and recruitment processes in India and the Western/European countries. This book has been written keeping in mind:
  • The business mind set of people in India.
  • The work culture that is practiced in India.
  • The basic skills and experiences of the technical writers.
  • Career prospects and advancement in the local market.
  • Management policies including recruitment, advancement, conflict management, working from home, etc.
